The Top Ten

1 Driver

You would expect tutorials to be easy but drivers tutorial is absolutely hard it just forces you to do stuff without telling you what to do and the worst part is this is only the first level in the game it’s not like the rest of the game is a cakewalk after this

This has to be some game designers cruel joke by forcing the player to complete a tutorial on how to play the game which wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that you have to accomplish a list of goals in a very small space, in a very small amount of time and you will fail if you smash your car 3 times and the most infuriating thing about it is its mandatory meaning you can't skip over it and if that wasn't enough the game doesn't tell you how to do any of these goals, a game shouldn't make you do this the purpose of the tutorial is to teach the player how to play the game and learn all the moves necessary to play not stick you in a place with a list of goals and expecting you to know how to do all of it. - egnomac

2 Superman 64

EVERYTHING is hard in Superman 64. - Synchronocity

3 Demon's Souls
4 Pokemon Yellow

This wasn't such a problem in Red & Blue since you can choose between Bulbasaur and Squirtle to easily beat Brock in the first Gym but since Pikachu is the only chose you get as a starter Pokémon it becomes a lot more difficult since electric types are useless against Rock Pokémon your pretty much going to have to raise a Caterpie and evolve it into a Buterfree and level it enough so you can at least have some sort of a fair chance. - egnomac

5 The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants
6 Fallout 2
7 Dragon's Lair

In the very first level you have to kill the dragon the problem is the dragon will always duck when duck to avoid its fireball you constantly have to switch between ducking and attacking which will take a while before you actually kill it. - egnomac

8 Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
9 Battletoads

Is the game have hard first level?

10 Batman Forever (SNES)

The Contenders

11 Back to the Future Part III (Genesis)
12 The Terminator (1992)
13 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

This really annoyed me about this game it takes a really long time before you actually get to your first dungeon, the game makes you go through all this filler before you actually start getting to the good stuff and I'm like "Just start the game already Wind Waker didn't take nearly this long to get to the first dungeon". - egnomac

It isn't that hard, the problem is the length, this tutorial goes on for around 4-3 hours, jesus
